3rd Winter School for PhD Students on Fluid Machines and Energy Systems
Mobility and Energy Transition
Pisa, March 25th - 28th, 2019
An event organized by School of Engineering - University of Pisa.
This year the 3rd “summer school” for PhD students of fluid machines and energy systems will be held in Pisa (Italy) from March 25th to 28th. The main topic of the school will be Mobility and Energy Transition. In the last 10 years, the share of renewable sources in the energy mix of several countries is increased with a steady pace. This led to a revolution in conceiving energy conversion and diffusion in comparison to a fossil fuel based system. Nowadays, thinking to a full-renewable-based system is no more just a dream. Nevertheless, the transition to this future implies several criticalities both from the technical and economic point of view. The School will be the opportunity to discuss these topics, have an insight to new frontiers of engineering research and promote the cooperation between PhD Students. The focus of the conference will be threefold: Turbomachinery, Energy Systems and Internal Combustion Engines. The school will include plenary sessions with outstanding keynote speakers from both academy and industry.
